Founding STYX member set to rock Dearborn Aug. 5
Dennis DeYoung and the Music of STYX will be the headline act on Saturday, August 5 at Dearborn’s Homecoming festival at Ford Field Park.
DeYoung is a founding vocalist and keyboardist of the epic rock ensemble STYX, who during its tenure from 1970-1999 scored hits with songs like “Show Me the Way,” “Lady,” and “Come Sail Away,” among others.
DeYoung is known as one of rock’s best keyboardists, famous for his impressive Oberheim synthesizer solos and for writing and singing six of the band’s seven top 10 Billboard Hot 100-ranked hits.
DeYoung has also enjoyed a successful solo career, which includes hits “Desert Moon,” “Don’t Wait for Heroes,” “Call Me,” and “This is the Time.” Additionally, his music appears in stage productions, films, television shows, and commercials.
The concert is free, as is admission to Homecoming. Now in its 38th year, the festival runs August 4-6 at Ford Field Park, 22051 Cherry Hill, Dearborn.
Attendees enjoy delicious food, carnival rides, games and contests, high school reunions, amazing fireworks, and top-tier entertainment.
The festival also serves as a fundraising showcase for many non-profits and community partners. More than 20 organizations work with the Dearborn Community Fund and the City of Dearborn to be part of Homecoming.
Homecoming activities and entertainment are paid for by generous support from sponsors, not City tax dollars.
